world of training and management development is not migrating
wholesale to the internet and nobody expects it will. There
exist, however, legacy libraries of workbooks and materials
which should soon be converted to digital formats. Each
day we provide our clients with conversion services, from
the simple substitution of HTML documents for paper-based
workbooks, to full blown instructional revamp efforts. It
all must be converted; the question is when and how. We
have four service levels.
Usually done on a per page basis, it creates an internet
or intranet readable version of the legacy inventory. Some
value may be added, but for credit and policy manuals, this
simple level of service is usually priced by the page.
Digital renewal of existing courses
This converts the old books and workbooks but adds the features
normal for a digital effortglossaries, cross references,
and imbedded linkage to the internet. The user of this material
will not see a page turner but a contemporary
training interface. This can be considered not only a conversion
but an upgrade. We see this appropriate for credit and policy
manuals as well as training.
Value Added Redesign of existing legacy courses
We add the instructional design component to each project.
The full use of mastery tests, scoring and tracking converts
old courses into true e-learning platforms. We can incorporate
digital video which can be cross-referenced. This service
level presupposes an existing platform to be renewed or
For totally new offerings
We offer needs analysis and instructional design leading
to a fully integrated and digital training product. Each
full project has a dedicated project team and the client
is involved thoroughly in the entire continuum. We often
build continuing education portals as a part of these interventions.
